“I would never get the chance to tell Ben how much his farmhouse changed my life.”
Used to the rush of big city life and in need of a change an unexpected favor is called in, one Gigi can’t say no to. This is where we start the journey of Gigi and Roe’s new life. Reminiscent of the perfect small town you want to roadtrip and get lost in, complete with a sexy, grumpy, alpha, protective Sheriff and a charismatic selection of town folk sure to charm you, Prescott, Montana, pop. 823, is a brand new start for Georgia ‘Gigi’ and her little girl Rowan ‘Roe’ Ellars. It might take some getting used to, but they’re already dazzled by their new home – The Coppersmith Farmhouse. However, what she’s not so dazzled by – the Sheriff…or so she likes to tell herself.
“Seated on my stool, I had to tip my head way back to examine his face. I blinked a few times because this man was so ruggedly handsome I had to be imagining him.”
Jess Cleary isn’t too charmed with the newcomer to his small town. This Sheriff is highly suspicious of her motivations for moving and starting over in ‘small-town, USA’ and in particular the farmhouse that’s sat empty for almost two decades. It certainly doesn’t help that the minute they lay eyes on each other the chemistry arcs between the new enemies. Before long misconceptions come crashing down around Jess and he realizes he’s made some bad judgment calls and need to make amends – only his way. And just maybe along the way Georgia and Rowan will become his too.
“What I hadn’t known was that sitting on a stool in the ER, cleaning Milo’s hand, she was the most beautiful woman I’d ever lay eyes on.”
I had no idea what to expect when I opened this book. But what I found was so amazing. While the primary storyline starts out with Gigi and Roe’s journey to and their new life, several secondary storylines work their way into the narrative with ease. A lot of characters are introduced and some background paced out here and there. I never felt confused or lost in the story and was always able to place the characters – which is an excellent feat when starting a series with this many new faces. A little suspense is added in and there are definitely moments that shine light on real issues couples and women in general face. Gigi’s been hurt badly before and has her guard up with Jess and she’s not sure she wants to let it down, to chance being hurt. Jess is all alpha growly protective man and treats Gigi and Roe like the treasures they are. He has his struggles – his temper and alpha ‘decision making’ skills – however, I loved that he was able to take responsibility for his problems and work with Gigi and Roe to ‘do better’. That’s not to say he’s a pushover at all, just a good man who wants to make his girls happy. Roe is voiced so well; I loved her. She’s no perfect princess either (but so close!). She’s endearing in her adoration of Jess but we also get to see a little temper from her as well. The nicknames they all have for each other are utterly sweet and made me smile. I really enjoyed the epilogue, that extra peek into the happily ever after with just a little breadcrumb trail leading to other characters and hopefully more stories. This book really does have all the feels. Part learning to move on, enemies to lovers, a little suspense, a lot of love and healing, some sass sprinkled in and a book boyfriend to fight over. There are so many more stories here that I want to see and I can’t possibly pick, so I’ll wait not so patiently to see where we’re taken next, knowing that I love these characters and don’t think you could make a bad choice in giving any of them their HEA.
“Because those powerful words were like a balm to my heart, healing what had been broken in the past. I desperately wanted them to be real.”
Home is where the heart is and if you ask Jess Cleary he’ll tell you his heart lies in the Coppersmith Farmhouse, his home for many reasons, but mostly because of the other two hearts that reside there too. I was completely captivated, heart palpitating and in love with this fabulous start to a new series…and I hope you will be too because I highly recommend you 1-click right now and fall in love yourself.
“I had never been in love with a man. Maybe if I’d had more experience I would have realized it sooner. It felt strange that we hadn’t said the words to each other yet, but looking back, it had been there for a while. With every touch, every kiss, it was simply unspoken. Unspoken, but never missing.”

-The heroine has sass. Georgina, aka Gigi, has just moved to Prescott, Montana to start a new life with her four year old daughter Rowen. She was left a farmhouse by her friend Ben and when she arrives, she meets the hero, Jess Cleary. She’s been through alot but she’s a nurse and determined to make things work, no matter what she walks into. Even if Jess seems determined to give her a hard time. Heh. Things do NOT start off on the right foot, but you know exactly what will happen? Romance,yep, that’s it.
-The hero is alpha. Jess is exactly what I expect an alpha hero to be. He’s a little bit (ok, a lotta bit) bossy, protective, caring, used to being in control and once he realizes he’s wrong about Gigi, he sets about making her his in no uncertain terms. While the elements are there, he wasn’t quite as well matched with Gigi as I had hoped. There’s balance missing in their relationship. And that’s my problem with this romance.
-The romance was a tad too insta. The entire relationship goes from zero to sixty in the span of pages. Jess starts off as a jackass. That’s not the problem. I do not mind a jackass hero. As a matter of fact, one of my favorite heroes of all time, Tate from Sweet Dreams (and yes, Jess reminds me of him a bit), was a jackass. But there’s hidden depths to that jackassery and the sweet moments end up making me love him. Here, I didn’t quite buy into the turnaround from hate to heat, and they settled into their domestic bliss fairly quickly, even if Gigi had those moments where she doubted why he could possibly be with her. The scenes that could have been used to show me their bond, such as their first dinner together, were told to me in Gigi’s inner monologue rather than shown through dialogue. The scenes that could have really made me understand why she was so insecure, needed more than a casual wrapup. It just left me wanting more.
-The rest of the book was still interesting. Even if the romance was just ok, I liked Gigi and Rowen’s relationship. I liked Gigi’s friendship with Maisy. I liked the hot bunch of men in Prescott. I liked Ms. Perry’s take on the central storyline of the drugs in Prescott, even if it also wrapped up quickly. It was fairly easy to predict who was the ultimate villain, but the individual beats to that story worked for the most part. Basically,there’s alot to like in Prescott, and I’m not sad I visited. I just wanted a little more from Jess and Gigi to really make me love it.
The Bottom Line 3.25 stars
I liked this debut by Ms. Perry. There’s good potential for the ‘verse and I liked the build for the mystery. A little more time spent actually building the romance would have raised the bar. As it is, I will keep an eye out for the next in the series, because I’m curious to see how she grows as a writer as time goes on.
